Wednesday, September 2nd (Session E4) - Use of Montessori Approaches to Engage Residents and Staff

Session E4

The application of the Montessori Method in working with persons with dementia has been shown to be highly effective at fostering engagement in these individuals. This approach has evolved into the creation of resident-led communities in memory care, which represents a new paradigm for providing care to persons with dementia. Based on the values of respect, dignity, equality and trust, the Montessori Method now is being implemented as a management approach to create engaged staff members who care about each other.  A system-wide transformation is required to create true culture change. Examples of processes to create such a transformation are provided.

1. Recognize how a Montessori-based culture affects engagement for residents.
2. Recognize how a Montessori-based culture affects engagement for staff.
3. Recognize potential long-term benefits of adopting and sustaining a comprehensive Montessori-based approach within care organizations.
